It should have just been
The issue is in the way the GEDCOM was formatted. The first export was in the GEDCOM 5.5 format, but had selected Version 16, when the type of format was selected. I have used that format for many years. Out of habit I suspect.
To correct the unexpected results, I returned to the File, Export menu.
This brings up a window where you select the format that you want to export the file into. In this case, I selected GEDCOM 5.5, which is seen from the Output Format: pull down menu.
The default is FTM16, which I had used before, with the unexpected results. From this menu, I will select FTM2012.
With FTM2012 selected, a window will appear to name the GEDCOM file.
This time, the results were correct.
Not all GEDCOMs are equal.
